Dear ABC,


We have been providing astrology consultation and advice on true vedic principles on the internet since 2000 and serviced over a million customers with our free and premium services. We have prepared Foundation Pillar Horoscope 5 years report:

Any horoscope is founded on four basic pillars that act as the fulcrums of most of the important events of our lives.
These four pillars are the ascendant, the 4th house, the 7th house and the 10th house.

Role of Ascendant:
It is the 1st house of a horoscope and denotes the self, stature, health, general wellbeing, vitality, vigor, nature, temperament, disposition, personality and success and failure in efforts.
The Ascendant indicates the traits that the individual is inclined to be striving to.
This is the most personal part of the horoscope.

Role of 4th house:
It denotes mother, residence, property, education, and happiness, peace of mind, comforts and general welfare.
This is the area of our deepest concern for security and shelter.
This is concerned with home, traditions, stability, and nurturing. This is where one seeks comfort and protection.
One's activities here will be private and concealed.

Role of 7th house:
It denotes spouse, partner, marriage, family relationships, business partner, and relation with public, marital happiness, sexual desires, travels abroad, diplomacy and honor in another country, business tact, general happiness, general prosperity and cure of disease.
The personal tone of the houses 1 through 6, relate to interaction with others through the 7th house.
It suggests how one relates to the nearest ones.
This house is sometimes called the house of partnerships and marriage.

Role of 10th house:
This house denotes occupation, position, status, honor, dignity, respect, power, and travel to other countries, father and Karma.

Rating of each pillar in order of strength and suggestions about which one of them [self, home, spouse or career] should be the most important.
From the point of view of inherent potential as indicated by your horoscope, the houses 1st, 4th, 10th and the 7th houses have gradually reducing potential.
Thus the 1st house [ascendant] is the most potent house while the 7th house has comparatively the least potential.
At the present stage of your life you should consider the 10th house to be the most important and it must receive your maximum attention, followed by the 7th, 4th and the 1st in this order.
Due to several astrological reasons, the order of importance required by various houses is different from the order of their own strength.

Areas to be prioritized and areas not to be prioritized:

Here we talk about the following areas after taking note of your age and station in life:
Whether work or marriage should be more important:
The area of work should have more priority over marriage or marital life, while the area of marital life or marriage should not be overlooked in any way.
This is due to the fact that the 10th house [despite being stronger than 7th house] has comparatively somewhat better possibility of improvement during coming years [when D_10 career chart is compared with D_9 relationship chart].
All direct or even indirect attention to career will bring more benefits to you.
The house of marriage being a secondary house of career, attention to either of them will be mutually complementary.

Whether home or work should be more important:
Work should be more important as 10th house is weaker than the 4th house and also based purely on the most fundamental and practical logic that sustenance is always more important than every other thing [home or anything else].
Since the planetary afflictions to the 10th house of career cannot be removed, more attention to work will help to tone down this glitch and will indirectly improve home life, peace of mind and will also improve your performance at work.

Whether spouse or family should be more important:
At this stage of your life, you should take at least some care of all [who may be dependent on you in some way or the other] and carry all of them with you.
Your spouse can be a very useful helping hand in doing this, as your life partner and as a very important member of the family.
Though the overall family should be more important for a better overall life, you cannot afford to reduce the importance and space due to your spouse.

Whether self-development or work and family should be more important:
Self development is a continuous process and cannot be overlooked at any stage of life.
As is seen from your birth chart and the ruling periods and transits, the coming years of your life may offer you some scope for it and may provide some useful returns from any possible efforts in this direction.
Such efforts will not adversely affect your family life.
While it is always prudent to make truly focused and continuous use of the skills that you already have, you should also make efforts to upgrade your skills and qualifications to remain competitive in your career.
These will indirectly benefit your family.

Brief predictions for 5years:

General progress in each pillar:

First House:
Till 14 Jul 2015, your personal health, self confidence, speech, mental agility and capacity to put in harder efforts will increase.
Your actions will be imaginative, intelligent, eloquent and intuitive.
You will be able to extract better cooperation from others and gain from them.
Failure rates or delays in all undertakings will come down and you will be more and more acceptable to others.
But this status may not remain equally effective after the above date.
After 14 Jul 2015 to 15 Jul 2016 you will gradually have more ego and even pride.
You will need to feel more and more important, will radiate over confidence, will have showy and rather commanding behavior and will prefer to move in higher circles.
Yet some of the good things mentioned above will continue to happen, but at a reduced degree.
From mid Jul 2016 to mid Jul 2017, all the goodness of 2014-2015 will return to you while the negativity of your current attitude will go away.
This year can also bring progress in career or add new energy to your handling your work and other responsibilities.
2017-2018 may bring better luck, material and financial gains and also some new love.
You will also see good improvement in your health and popularity.
2018-2019 will be much supportive of career development and growth, make you appreciated by superiors and offer financial and material gains.
On the flip side, 2018-2019 will also give you exceptionally high degree of over confidence, much conceit, accentuated sexuality and a weak health status.
Except during period till 02 Nov 2014, transit Saturn will not support your good efforts while he can easily misguide you and instigate you to take a wrong routes in any matter and thus get into failure, loss of friends, loss of money and above all loss of peace of mind and good health [Sade sati effects].
On the whole you will see both challenges and opportunities during these five years and you will have the right sense and gut feeling to take the right track and make gains.
Just stay truly grounded with your eyes wide open.
Act with due diligence, patience and fairness.
Strictly avoid short cuts, everywhere.
You must not be combative with anyone at this stage.

Fourth House:
The 4th houses from ascendant and also from Moon are basically afflicted.
Differences, oppositions and confrontations within your home will be quite active till 30 Jan 2016, especially from 03 Nov 2014 and these may not reduce much even after 30 Jan 2016 and will continue till 27 Oct 2017, after which this status will be somewhat moderated.
This will happen due to transit of Rahu in the 4th house [Virgo] till 30 Jan 2016 and transit Saturn’s aspect on Mercury, the lord of the 4th house from ascendant from 03 Nov 2014 to 27 Oct 2017.
These problems at home will never be entirely eliminated and you will be required to take due and possible care of your home life.
Health of mother and your relationship with her, if applicable, will remain a concern though to a reduced degree during 2014-2015, 2016-2017 and during 2018-2019 but may increase at other times.
Level of domestic comforts will not improve to the degree that you may look for.
Property matters can be quite tricky except for some relief during 2015 to 2017.
Avoid going for purchase, sale or mortgage of any property during these five years or at least till 02 Nov 2014 or after 27 Oct 2017.

Seventh House:
Per the area of relationships, marriage and marital life is quite weak and afflicted in your horoscope.
If you are not married at this point of time, marriage may have a chance during 2015-2016.
During these five years, events of your 7th house will be of mixed nature but these will be much more on the positive side during 2015-2016 and partially during 2016-2017 but can be kept just about fair at other times.
Transit Jupiter will specifically help you on this while transit Saturn will sternly oppose this positivity.
Overall relation with spouse and even with those at work will be fairly good and encouraging, provided you act positively and also proactively.
You will get good cooperation and support while your own approach to them should be energetically positive.
But from after 14 Jul 2015 onwards you will need to maintain a flexible attitude to make better use of the planetary transits, especially of Jupiter.
Avoid being stubborn or egoistic and take the path of compromise, both with spouse or partner and also at work place, since transit Saturn will create obstructions in marriage, marital life or work, especially during 2016 and 2017.
Take all important decisions after discussion with your spouse though it is not necessary that you do whatever he says.
This approach will satisfy his ego and will help your relationship with spouse.

Tenth house:
Main period lord Mars and the sub period lords Mercury, Ketu, Venus and Sun will operate till 30 Sep 2019.
Since all these planets are quite afflicted in various ways, they do not promote or protect your life events including career.
Your transit chart is comparatively better and offers some support to career.
Transit Saturn, lord of Sun sign, is exalted in your career house from Sun sign till 02 Nov 2014 [very positive] while he will be in the gain house from Moon [very positive].
At this stage exalted transit Jupiter will aspect the career house from ascendant.
Thus some progress in career is quite possible during 2014-2015.
This can happen through a change of job or a change of role in current job that will bring better pay.
In case you are not working now and want to find a position, this will be possible along the same time line.
But growth after this success point will be quite slow and somewhat difficult to attain till 27 Oct 2017 due to Sade sati effects [quite negative] while transit Saturn will remain in much favorable position from ascendant [quite positive] thus giving you generally mixed results.
During 2018 and 2019, transit Saturn in the 2nd from Moon will be good but in the 7th from ascendant will be bad.
Thus you will go through a major flux of events, thoughts, confusions and occasional significant communication failure.
This MUST be avoided for your own benefit.
Handled well 2018-2019 can bring a very coveted change of job provided you try well in advance.
You must also maintain a cool mind, shun pride and remain focused in your efforts.
On the other hand transit Jupiter in very favorable locations will protect your position and will bless you with very good financial gains on a regular basis, with or without a change of job.
All you will need to do is to maintain a low profile, avoid arguments and controversies and just do your work with all earnestness and maintain good relation with all.
You will face some occasional `differences with colleagues and seniors.
Communication failure will be behind this and if not avoid at its genesis, it can become a major issue and can work against your own interests.
There can be many obstructions to your work and your performance can suffer, if communication is not proper at all times.
Period from 03 Nov 2014 to 27 Oct can be a highly challenging phase in career [transit Saturn opposite to natal Sun in your career chart D_10] but you will cross this quite well if you go by the suggestions give above.
At this stage you may not be allowed to use your own powers freely.
Your attitude towards this restriction must be streamlined though improved moderation of attitude.
You should refrain from any power struggle at work since differences and restrictions can then graduate to censor and may make things tougher for you to handle.
This point will be less important during 2018 and 2019.
Just focus on team work and cooperate with all and stop offering unsolicited suggestions or comments.
If you can act in this way, transit Jupiter will keep your position stable and safe during these five years.

Which pillar should be a focus of life?
The focus of your life during the coming five years should be career followed by your marital life, home life and then your health.
Handled intelligently, your home life may offer you emotional support and confidence and will encourage you to do better at work and to accrue gains through that and through a grounded state of mind.
These together will much help you to maintain a better health necessary for continuous hard efforts.
